Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Briefs in the Cobb County Appeal

The 11th Circuit Court is set to hear the appeal of the Cobb County evolution disclaimer case soon and the briefs are being filed quickly. The National Center for Science Education is compiling many of those briefs, including the brief that they and People for the American Way filed together last week. Other briefs have been filed by Americans United (along with the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League), the National Association of Science Teachers (along with the National Association of Biology Teachers), the American Jewish Congress, the Clergy and Laity Network (with the Witherspoon Society), and 56 professional science organizations. We have also completed a brief on behalf of several state science organizations, including Michigan Citizens for Science. I hope to make that available both here and on the MCFS website in the next few days.
